Beauty Box 5 Review: February 2014

Hey guys! I’ve got some really awesome nails right now! They’re from the nail stuff I got in this month’s BB5. Read on to check them out!

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service. You pay $12 a month (total) and you get a box of 5 full or sample beauty products. Each month is different and you (usually) never know what you’re going to get.

That’s where I come in! I just got the February 2014 BB5 the other day and thought I’d tell you all about it!

Beauty Box 5 Review Video: February 2014

Normally, I would have done an unboxing video. Well, I did, but there was a problem with the video and I couldn’t use it. So, instead, I filmed a new video that just shows what I got in the box. Check it out above!

Beauty Box 5 Review February 2014: The BoxHere’s what came in this month’s BB5:

Let’s take a deeper look at this stuff!

Rockstar Nails Nail Polish and Nail Sprinkles

Beauty Box 5 Review February 2014: Rockstar Nails Nail Polish and Nail SprinklesThese two nail products are the most exciting things in this month’s box. I mean, I love nail polish. That’s the truth.

BB5 sent out several shades. I got the blue/turquoise color above. Of course, I couldn’t wait to try them out. Here’s what I came up with:

NOTD: Rockstar Nails Nail Polish and Nail Sprinkles - turquoise nail art with nail caviarAhhh! So cute. I love the nail sprinkles. They’re loose balls like any other nail caviar. They look even cooler in person.

I decided to do the nail sprinkles only on my ring finger. It looks awesome.

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

Beauty Box 5 Review February 2014: John Frieda Luxurious VolumeThis BB5 came with two sets of samples for the shampoo and conditioner. Each sample is really only one-time-use, especially for someone like me with such long, long hair.

If you can, bring a pair of scissors into the shower with you, or cut the pouches ahead of time. They’re very hard to get open with wet fingers. Learn from my mistakes, y’all.

I’ll tell you one thing, though: my hair is really soft right now.

Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads

Beauty Box 5 Review February 2014: Every Beauty Makeup Remover PadsIn the video, I didn’t know how many pads came in this sample size. Well, now I know! It comes with 5 pads; good for a 5-day vacation.

Beauty Box 5 Review February 2014: Every Beauty Makeup Remover PadWhen the directions say only add a drop or two of water to the makeup remover pad, you listen! Because if you get it sopping wet, it’s a lot harder to use. I talk from experience.

Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara

Beauty Box 5 Review February 2014: It's So Big Volumizing MascaraThough this mascara is a sample size, you can get a lot of uses with it. It’s only a little less than half the size of the full-sized version. Yay! So, that makes this a great travel mascara.

Beauty Box 5 Review February 2014: It's So Big Volumizing Mascara WandI love the name of this stuff. “It’s So Big” is just hilarious. But is it really that big? I found that, while it certainly added a lot of volume, I’ve tried other mascaras that have done a better job (NYX Doll Eye Volume Mascara for instance).

Still, it’s a lot better than a lot of other mascaras out there.

Did you get the February BB5?

If so, what color did you get for the Rockstar Nails nail polish and nail sparkles? I saw that a lot of people got pink. While pink is definitely my favorite color, I’m glad I got this blue. It’s a nice change of pace.

Let’s chat about it in the comments!
